The best rule of thumb is never to cut your lawn when it is wet. You may get an uneven cut and leave clumps of cut wet grass on your lawn. Mow your grass when it is about two inches high. Never cut more than a third of its total height. Also, ensure your lawn is getting a least one inch of water a week to keep it healthy.
